This is one of the cards we made at our monthly stamp club meeting. It uses the stamp set called Sea Of Textures and the matching dies called Under The Sea. This is such a fun set and has lots of really nice but different dies. Although these products will be carried over into the new Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog, you won’t be able to get the 10% discount Bundle Price after June 3rd. If you like it, buy it while you can get the special price.
To make this card, I first stamped the sea plants in Old Olive twice onto Whisper White cardstock. When you stamp something twice without re-inking it, you get darker and light images which gives some depth. I cut out the net using one of the dies in Blueberry Bushel ink. I cut out two coral in Calypso Coral cardstock and the sand dollar in Whisper White. I layered everything together and then cut out the little fish (one die cuts them all out at once). Then I stamped the sentiment in Blueberry Bushel ink and layered it all onto of a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock that I had cut out using the Rectangle Stitched Dies. I layered all of that on a piece of Best Route Designer Series Paper. I love this paper. It is the first time I have almost used an entire package of DSP. Sadly, it is retiring on June 3rd. Lastly I adhered all the layers to a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I decided to offset it into one corner for a different look.
